Computer was slow and seemed to have too many things running all the time, freezing, etc. I ran Malwarebytes and Webroot Secure Anywhere; they didn't find any problems.
So restored it to a week earlier then everything ran just fine for a few days. Now it seems to be doing it again.
I went to Task Manager and found several items I can not clearly identify after searching online for them:
Monitor.exe *32
csrss.exe
I have attached a copy of my Task Manager Processes runningAttached File  Task Manager 1-16-2013.doc   51.5KB   5 downloads

Hi -
Do you have Advanced SystemCare by IObit installed on your system ?? If so then this is often it - (unrequired program IMO)
Ten pages of GOOGLE listed almost nothing with the *32 included as part of the name.

Can you go to Task Manager, and where you see the last >| < Vertical line that is hiding the rest of the words in that line
Please move it over to the right side (carefully use your mouse) to expose more of the wording and it may list the program that this is from.

Just post the words (a screen shot is not needed) that appear after what looks like Advanced -

csrss.exe
is usually a normal part of your system that can be ignored, unless infected ..............

Thank You -

Hi -

Personally Only - I would remove this program, as it contains a mix of Antivirus / Antimalware / Registry Cleaner, Adjusters etc, that are not actually required -
I have had problems with this program mix, and now I only have a Decent Antivirus, and a Decent Antimalware program installed -

It is often hard to remove, but I have found this link provides good information on how to remove it -

Visit this site, or follow the links provided >> http://singularlabs.com/uninstallers/security-software/
Item #17 IObit > Info > Tool (Note: Cleans left-overs after a normal uninstall)

Just an idea for you ...........
Thank You -
